You'll have to look in the movie titles at the beginning and end to see if there's something like 1979 COMPANY NAME Copyright or © 1979 COMPANY NAME for Blood Barrier and the others. All 3 elements are necessary, i.e., year, production company, and the word copyright or its symbol, ©. If they aren't there, the movie is PD.
